Lily Bird Studio- Pink Dress

So, the other day I shared a first, my first swimsuit. 
Well, here is another.... a pillowcase dress. 
I know, I know, most people start off making pillowcase dresses.
For some reason, I never had. 
I'm not sure what it is, but, this dress just seems a little more elegant than a plain 'ol pillowcase.
This is Lily Bird Studio's, "Pink Dress".
The Pink Dress is one of Lily Bird's best sellers and they recently upgraded the pattern to a size 10 and larger sizes are in the works. 

To celebrate the new upgrade the pattern will be on sale for $5  until next Friday at Lily Bird Studio.
A free update is available to those that own the pattern. More information on their blog.

Ellie Inspired "Oh You Beautiful Boutique"

Ellie Inspired is one of my favorite pattern designers. 
So, when I was asked if I would like to be one of their featured boutiques I was absolutely floored! 

Can I sew?
Do people complement my outfits?
But, to be recognized by someone established in this industry,
gives me goosebumps.
The pattern I chose to feature was the Lucy Baby.
One of the reason I loved Ellie Inspired's patterns is because of now absolutely adorable the clothes are.
The instructions in the patterns pay close attention to details and they are illustrated with photos and computer drawn graphics.

The Lucy baby pattern is currently on sale for $4.50 in Ellie Inspired Shop
As always we would love to design a custom Lucy Baby for you. Contact us today!

Cole's Creations Bow-a-licious Swimsuit

Ok....confession time. I have never sewed a swimsuit before. So when Nicole from Cole's Creations posted a testing called for her new pattern and said that no swimsuit experience was needed I quickly threw my name in the hat. 
This is the result...
Not bad for my first swimsuit! 
Everywhere we go Baby Girl gets complements on her Bow-a-licious Suit.
The pattern comes with photos and step by step instructions that are easy to follow.
The bow can be worn in the front, back or left off for a quick easy leotard.

The pattern comes in sizes 1/2- 16!!! 
That is an amazing size range. 
The pattern also gives instructions for a full lining and a shelf bra for older girls.
From today until 5/16/14 the Bow-a-licious Swimsuit is on sale for $5. 
You can get your pattern, here.
I would love to see your Bow-a-licious Swimsuit!

Sis Boom Tobago Tank

Last week, I gave you a sneak peek at the new girls' pattern from Sis Boom, the Tobago Tank.

 The Tobago Tank was officially released today!
The Tobago Tank includes sizes 3/6m, 9/12m, 18m/2T, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, and 13/14. The pattern is cut on the bias to give the tank a nice drape.
The Tobago Tank is a quick and fun pattern. Depending on your fabric, your tank can be classy or fun and whimsical.

For Baby Girl's Alice inspired tank I used an adorable knit fabric. To help hold its shape I used woven for the facings.

We are in love with the Tobago Tank and we think you will be too! 

Until 7/16/14 you can purchase your Tobago pattern for only $5!! You can purchase the pattern here.
Don't sew? Love the Tobago!
 Contact us at our shop and we will help create you a custom Tobago Tank!

Sisboom Tortola and a Sneak Peek!

 I had the absolute pleasure to test Sisboom's newest pattern the Tortola.


As a plus size woman it is hard to find patterns that fit. The Tortola was a happy surprise! It is so simple and quick to sew and it fits amazing!!!
You can check out the other testers' versions on the Scientific Seamstress Blog.

The Tortola  pattern ranges from xs (upper chest measurement of 31"-33") to 3xl (upper chest measurement of 48"-52")

Currently the Tortola pattern is only available in the Road Trip Pattern Club ( you can check it out here). If you don't want to join is on the road trip, Sisboom will be releasing the pattern in October.

Now for an absolutely adorable sneak peak...

Currently in testing is the girl's version. 
Baby girl loves it so much, it was hard to get her to stand still for photos.
It is so light and airy all she wanted to do was dance!

 Lets see you in your Tortola!
